The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures is inviting applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, specializing in Intercultural Communication, commencing August 1, 2013 (subject to final budgetary approval). The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in Anthropology or Linguistics, with an interest in the ethnography of communication, and have an excellent record in teaching and an outstanding research record, as well as a very well developed research program for the next 5 years. The successful candidate will be teaching mainly in English, but the ability to teach in one of the Department’s languages, especially Chinese (Mandarin), would be an asset.
We are looking for someone who will be able to teach undergraduate linguistics in the interdisciplinary Bachelor’s degree in Arts and Contemporary Studies (www.ryerson.ca/artsandcontemporarystudies) and to join the Yeates School of Graduate Studies in order to become involved in one of the Faculty of Arts’ graduate programs, such as the M.A. in Immigration and Settlement Studies and the M.A. and Ph.D. in Communication and Culture. The candidate will also have experience in providing service to the academic and/or professional community. Finally, in anticipation of the launch of the Department’s undergraduate degree in Language and Intercultural Communication, the candidate will have an ability to participate in the promotion and development of this new and exciting program.
Please send an electronic copy and a hard copy of your curriculum vitae, together with a cover letter, teaching evaluations, if any, as well as recent and significant research samples, and a list of three references by November 30, 2012, to:
